Indian Ex-defence Service Employees Chamber of Commerce & Industries

Activities  accordance with the chamber’s charter, all directly or indirectly aid ex-servicemen, and widows / dependants of martyred servicemen. These also add to nation building efforts and resettling the ex-servicemen in civilian life. In practical and tangible ways, our activities also fill gaps of knowledge, skills and attitude of the comunities. Such activities are both ongoing, long term or short term. Few such efforts are showcased on this page
